Japan Earthquake & Tsunami March 11, 2011 Maret 16, 2011Posted by ahmad in home, warta geologi.
Japan was hit by a monster earthquake on friday at 2:46 p.m. Tokyo time. The earthquake that hit Japan is definitely a huge one, 8.9. at a depth of 32 km triggering a massive 10 meter tsunami, reports the USGS. In the last 140 years Japan has suffered from several earthquakes, but not one as strong as this one. It also shake all over the planet especially in the Pacific region. The pacific has been subject to many quakes and with them often tsunami’s cross the seas and land in the region.
Colossal, fast-moving waves moved inland washing away buildings, ships, cars, and land. Reportedly, air and ground transportation is disrupted and limited. This disaster has caused tremendous damage and brought a lot of casualties, really sad!
Grief and sadness must be felt every person who heard or witnessed the disaster, in which each person is difficult to avoid the coming disaster, only expect God’s help to escape and survived the disaster. Japan is earthquake-prone countries, so that in Japanese schools the students have been trained how to rescue yourself in the event of earthquake. However, the disaster came without being able to vote, only the power of the Creator who can help.
Japan has warned its citizens against the possibility of aftershocks and tsunamis suggest to stay away from coastal areas. As a result of the disaster, the dozens of countries that are along the coast should increase vigilance in the face of the possibility of a tsunami. According to Paul Conneally of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies that attention will be focused primarily on Asia and the Pacific. Hopefully, with awareness can bring salvation, at least the victim could be minimized. May God protect us all.
